Miley Cyrus...

"omg...like..he like...casted-duh me...as...Catwoman...wheeeww...wheeeww yeah...omg..."

might as well hire the entire Mickey Mouse club as the rest of the League of Shadows

If that happened it would be the first time I'd say "I hope she dies in the movie"...and I mean the actress not just Selina Kyle.
